Al Saud regime on verge of collapse: Iran cleric

A senior Iranian cleric says the rule of Al Saud dynasty is on the brink of collapse as the Riyadh regime continues its brutal military aggression against Yemen.

The logic of Saudi attack on Yemen is not clear. Saudis are doing a “very heinous deed” in the impoverished country, said Ayatollah Mohammad Ali Movahhedi Kermani in a sermon to worshippers at weekly Friday Prayers in the Iranian capital, Tehran.

“You [Saudis] have triggered a bloodbath in Yemen and have killed more than 2,500 innocent people in the country,” he added.

Gen. Dempsey: US Could Still Attack Iran Despite Defensive Missiles

Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey sought to downplay the impact of Russia removing a long-standing ban on selling S-300 defensive missiles to Iran, saying the US option to attack Iran remains “intact.”

Israel’s Nuclear Weapons Program; The Former Soviet Union As America’s New Frontier

Since Hillary Clinton announced without any surprise that she was running for president, it is worth taking a look at her record. As U.S. Secretary of State during the conflict between Russia and Georgia, Clinton claimed that the U.S. was committed to “Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” and that the “United States does not recognize spheres of influence.”

In the meantime she was pushing for the military integration of countries from the former Soviet Union with NATO. Rick Rozoff commented at the time: “Despite Clinton’s claim to the contrary, the United States most decidedly recognizes spheres of influence. In its own hemisphere – the entirety of it – in the South Caucasus and everywhere else on the planet.”

Also in the double standard category, Washington is applying sanctions on Iran for its non existent nuclear weapons, even though the Pentagon has “officially” recognized that Israel is a nuclear power.

Op-Ed: Attack Now – Russian Interference Leaves Israel No Choice

The Obama Doctrine – scorn your friends, reward your enemies – has finally reaped the whirlwind, namely Russia and its pledge to provide Iran with an array of the most advanced “defensive” missiles on earth. This leaves Israel with no choice except to act BEFORE those missiles are deployed.

Israel must attack to remove those nukes before it’s too late.

If it was difficult to successfully strike Iran’s nuclear facilities today, tomorrow will be near impossible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I was worried that Russia's sending defensive missiles to Iran might provoke this reaction.

I would like to remind everyone of three important facts before a lot of people die in yet another war.

1. Israel was at the forefront of screaming that Iraq had nuclear weapons, and bombed Iraq's nuclear power station at Osirak under the claim that it concealed a clandestine bomb factory similar to the one Israel maintains under Dimona. Following the 2003 invasion of Iraq (again supported by Israeli claims of nuclear weapons) experts examined the ruins of Osirak and found no evidence of a weapons facility, nor has any evidence to support Israel and the US' claim that Iraq had nuclear weapons ever been found. Israel has a very poor record of accuracy in knowing who does or does not have nuclear weapons, other than their own.

2. Iran has not launched a war of aggression against another country in over 200 years, standing in sharp contrast with Israel, which these days cannot seem to go six months without attacking one of their neighbors.

3. Iran has signed and ratified the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, So has the United States. Everything Iran is doing with nuclear power is allowed to them under that treaty. Recently declassified US documents support the conclusions from earlier documents released by South Africa, and Mordechai Vanunu's photos of the Dimona weapons factory. Israel does have nuclear weapons, has had them since the 1970s, including hydrogen bombs. Israel refuses to sign the NNPT or allow IAEA inspections. IN short, Iran is playing by the rules. Israel is not.

Iran is not going to attack Israel. The result would be Iran melted down into a giant glowing slab of green glass. What the Russian missiles do is make it impossible for Israel to bully Iran, or attack it to remove an economic rival, as Netanyahu himself admitted to only last week.

US, Israel OK'd Saudi war on Yemen: Iran defense min.

Iran’s defense minister says the Saudi aggression against Yemen has been authorized by the United States and the Israeli regime, calling for an immediate end to the deadly assaults.

Addressing the Fourth Moscow International Security Conference on Thursday, Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said the Saudi government unleashed deadly air raids against Yemen once it received the green light from the United States and Israel, and was promised military cooperation by some regional states.

He added that not only will the Saudi regime fail to achieve its “illegitimate” purposes in Yemen, but will also suffer a heavy defeat and precipitate its downfall, said Dehqan, adding a fate similar to that of former Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein, awaits Riyadh’s ruler.

S-300 missile system serves defense purposes for Iran: Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin has defended Moscow’s recent decision to deliver S-300 air defense system to Iran, saying the system is meant for deterrence amid the developments in war-torn Yemen.

He made the remarks during his annual televised question-and-answer session with the nation at Gostiny Dvor (Merchant Yard) exhibition hall in the Russian capital city of Moscow on Thursday.

“This is a defensive weapons system. More than that, considering the situation that is building up in the region, especially regarding the incidents in Yemen, we think that the delivery of this kind of weapon is a preventive factor,” Putin said.

The comments come as Yemen has been the scene of deadly aerial assaults by Saudi Arabia since March 26. The attacks have so far killed some 2,600 people, according to Yemeni sources.

Those to Blame for Iraq, Now Want Iran. Not Again!

Many neo-conservatives have close ties with Israel’s right-wing. Prominent neo-conservatives Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, James Colbert and David and Meyrav Wurmser wrote a memo to Netanyahu in 1997 entitled “Clean Break,” which recommended the reordering of the entire Middle East to the benefit of Israel.

Brownfeld lays it all out, in plain and simple language. The US political machine has been bought out.

‘No end to sanctions, no agreement’: Iran sticks to nuclear deal demands

There’ll be no deal on Tehran’s nuclear program without the simultaneous lifting of all sanctions against Iran, President Hassan Rouhani stressed, echoing an earlier statement by Iranian supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

"If there is no end to sanctions, there will not be an agreement," Rouhani said in a televised speech in the northern Iranian city of Rasht. "The end of these negotiations and a signed deal must include a declaration of cancelling the oppressive sanctions on the great nation of Iran."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu and his Congressional lackeys have in effect "moved the goal posts" for the Iran deal, mandating a 56 day delay while Congress considers (they kills) the lifting of sanctions. The intention is obvious; to kill any chance of a deal with Iran and open the door to war.

Putin defends Iran missile decision during call-in show

President Vladimir Putin sternly urged the West to respect Russia's interests in global affairs and defended his move to sanction the delivery of a long-range air defense missile system to Iran during a marathon TV call-in show with the nation Thursday.

Putin scathingly criticized Washington for refusing to see Moscow as an equal partner and warned that Russia-West ties, in shambles over the Ukrainian crisis, could only be normalized when the U.S. and its allies show readiness for compromise.

He also described the killing of top Kremlin critic Boris Nemtsov as "tragic and shameful" and commended police for quickly tracking down the perpetrators, but said he wasn't certain if Russian law-enforcement agencies would be able to track down those who organized it.

Russia bashers eat crow as Putin wins Time Magazine poll

Vladimir Putin steals the show in TIME 100 reader’s poll

Western media did their best to hide Putin’s stratospheric popularity in their assigned propaganda task of demonizing Russia and Putin over the Ukrainian Western coup , replacing the Iran nuclear weapons threat hoax with the new Russian Bear threat one.

The biggest threat to our national security comes from treasonous cliques within our own ranks and their recent marriage over that last decade into the international corporate crime syndicates.

We are not really biased here at VT. It is just a simple observation to us… it is Putin and Lavrov all the way. No one can touch them and they own this piece of history, something that the spinmeisters cannot lay a glove on.

TIME Magazine Invaded by Kremlin Troll Army

Western media campaign to demonize Putin has failed to convince its target audience. The Western public are not buying the hysterical political agenda.
The iconic current affairs TIME magazine follows this week’s news that Russian President Vladimir Putin came top of the TIME 100 readers’ poll.

Western publics have now alternative media sources, ranging from foreign-based professional news services to a plethora of Western-based internet sites. The alternative scope is often critical of Western government policies and capable of ably exposing ulterior, hidden political agenda. In other words, the alternative news sources are often doing the proper job of journalism that is neglected by Western mainstream media who seem to be preoccupied with advancing the political objectives of their governments – no matter how unethical those objectives are.

A Reckless Act in the Senate on Iran

Congress has formally muscled its way into President Obama’s negotiations with Iran, creating new and potentially dangerous uncertainties for an agreement that offers the best chance of restraining that country’s nuclear program.

With a unanimous vote on Tuesday, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee approved a bill that would require Congress to review, and then vote on, the final text of a nuclear deal. It would also prohibit Mr. Obama from waiving economic sanctions on Iran — the crucial element of any agreement under which Iran rolls back its nuclear program — for at least 30 days, and up to 52 days, after signing an agreement so Congress has time to weigh in.

The full Senate and the House will have to approve the bill. But the committee’s action gives momentum to those who have bitterly criticized Mr. Obama for negotiating with Iran, though they offer no credible alternative to the preliminary deal on the table.

Russian-Iranian Cooperation In The Creation Of New Regional Security Systems

It is quite obvious that Russia cannot substitute the West and in particular European countries with someone else. It is impossible for historical and cultural reasons, the abundance of industrial relations, geographical proximity and so on. Moscow can however substantially weaken such dependency through the strengthening of political, military, financial and economic relations with other countries which are friendlier and less susceptible to pressure from Washington. Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) holds a special place amongst countries friendly to the Russian government, and strategic dialogue is being actively developed with it.

Israel cheers as Obama retreats before Congress on Iran deal

Israel said it is pleased with a compromise bill being floated on the Hill, which would give US legislators oversight in the Iran nuclear deal. The White House agreed to the bill adopted by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

"We are certainly happy this morning, this is an achievement for Israeli policy... [Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's] speech in Congress ... was decisive in achieving this law, which is a very important element in preventing a bad deal, or at least, in improving the agreement and making it more reasonable," Yuval Steinitz, Netanyahu’s intelligence, foreign relations and strategic minister, told Israel Radio.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Marco Rubio and AIPAC allied in effort to insert poison pill into Iran deal

Marco Rubio just announced for president in a call to donors. First things first.

Rubio has his foreign-policy priorities down, too. He wants to insert a poison pill into the Iran deal:

Sen. Marco Rubio wants to make Iran recognize Israel’s right to exist as a condition of any nuclear agreement with Tehran.

The Florida Republican has floated his proposal as a possible amendment to a Senate bill written by Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) that would allow Congress to disapprove of any deal…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iran's deal is not with the US Government, it is with the international community. Congress has no authority over that community or the United Nations, which organized the P5+1. Congress, willing to allow the President to start wars and murder people on his own whims, is suddenly demanding oversight on a peace agreement, with the clear Israel-ordered agenda of killing the deal. But Congress can only kill the deal for the US, not the other nations. If the rest of the P5+1 agree to the deal, with the Congress being the lone holdout, the world will see the US as the rogue nation, acting once again as Israel's slave-state to start and fight Israel's wars.

The Iranian leader, speaking in a televised speech in the northern Iranian city of Rasht, also repeated earlier statements that his country will not accept any comprehensive nuclear deal with world powers unless all sanctions imposed against it are lifted.

“We are in talks with the major powers and not with the Congress,” Rouhani said, Iranian state television reported. Rouhani said the U.S. Congress’ power to review a nuclear deal with Iran was a domestic U.S. matter

Gideon Levy: A Prophetic Voice from Israel

The few prophetic voices we have, like Gideon Levy, will continue to remind us of the false prophets who have led us into the darkness.

As part of his mission, Levy came to Washington last week to speak at the National Press Club.

Levy came to Washington with the simple message that change in the situation between Israel and it neighbors will have to come from the U.S. He feels that Israel is a “lost case”. Change will not come from an Israeli society which “has surrounded itself with shields, with walls, not just physical walls but also mental walls.”

He sees three principles which allow “Israelis to live easily with the brutal tyranny that is the occupation”.

Hillary Clinton – the ‘Liberal’ Puppet for War

Hillary Clinton this week launched her bid for the US presidential elections in 2016.

Clinton’s Republican rivals or would-be rivals immediately fired the brickbats, accusing the 67-year-old former First Lady of being a «Washington insider» and the «embodiment of all that is wrong» in US politics.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is lambasted by Republicans as a «liberal».

Whether described as «liberal», «conservative» or «hawk» – all American presidential candidates are the same in practice. Puppets for sale.

The unintended irony of Clinton’s Republican detractors, who include rabid rightwing Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, as well as the maverick Senator Rand Paul, is that every single one of them will have to spend similar amounts of cash in their anticipated presidential campaigns.

The hidden agenda is always – what else –chaos; be it across “Syraq” or inside Yemen. With an extra bonus; while Washington is engaged on striking a nuclear deal with Tehran, it also turbo-charges an alliance against Tehran using the House of Saud.

Iran Deal Reached In Senate; White House Hints Its Support

A tentative deal has been reached by senators on a bill to apply congressional oversight to a nuclear deal with Iran. And early signals from the White House suggest the president will drop his veto threat and sign the measure.

Under the deal, the president would still be required to submit any final agreement before Congress and Congress would continue to have a say over whether he can lift sanctions on Iran in exchange for restrictions on Iran's nuclear program. But the new deal, hammered out between Republicans and Democrats on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, would reduce the time frame the Senate has to consider the lifting of sanctions -- from 60 days to 52 at most -- and would keep demands on Iran limited primarily to its nuclear program and not, for example, against its sponsorship of terrorism.

"The president would be willing to sign the proposed compromise that is working its way through the committee today," White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Tuesday.

The deal reached in Lausanne, Switzerland by Iran and five powers, led by the US, appears to be about nuclear capability.

In fact, the real issue was not nuclear weapons, which Iran does not now possess, but Iran’s potential geopolitical power.

Ahoy! Oil Tankers Form Four-Mile Line In Persian Gulf As Iran Talks Stoke Supply Glut Fears

With the US set to run out of on-land storage in the space of just three months and with the Iran nuclear deal still stuck in “tentative,” “maybe/maybe not,” purgatory (i.e. “we agree on the outline of a plan which will pave the way for an agreement but aren't sure how much of the plan or hypothetical agreement we want to share”), interesting times lay ahead for crude which, in a likely preview of what’s to come, traded in “deal or no deal” mode throughout Thursday’s session. With Tehran sitting on 9% of the world’s proven reserves, the lifting of sanctions and opening of the country’s oil fields to foreign investment could trigger a dramatic decline in crude prices as an extra million bpd gets set to be unleashed on an already saturated market.

Iranians Are Much Talked About on Sunday Morning TV, but Never Heard From

But as these shows “cover” the Iran deal, one thing is glaringly missing: Iranian voices. There has not been a single Iranian official recently interviewed by any of these Sunday morning shows. When I raised this issue on Twitter a couple of weeks ago, a Meet the Press Senior Editor, Shawna Thomas, said the show had “put in a request” with Iran for an interview, while MSNBC’s Chris Hayes also suggested that it can be difficult to secure interviews with Iranian government officials.

Obama: Netanyahu has not offered alternative to Iran deal

US president criticizes prime minister for opposing deal without providing an alternative that 'makes it less likely for Iran to get a nuclear weapon'.

"The Prime Minister of Israel is deeply opposed to it, I think he’s made that very clear. I have repeatedly asked - what is the alternative that you present that you think makes it less likely for Iran to get a nuclear weapon? And I have yet to obtain a good answer on that that."
Barack Obama

Americans don’t want Congress to sabotage Iran deal – new poll

Although some lawmakers, including Democrats, believe Congress should have a say in any potential removal of Iranian sanctions, most Americans say Congress should not keep a possible a nuclear deal from being implemented.

Roughly 61 percent of Americans support the framework agreement struck between Iran and the P5+1 (the US, UK, France, China, Russia and Germany) earlier this month, according to a new poll conducted by Hart Research. Thirty-four percent of voters said they were against the deal.

Partner or Pariah? Kerry Calls Lavrov for Help

Naming and shaming over the Iranian nuclear debacle will call out who just is the real pariah and who is the real partner to world peace.

Reading the Western news media is like swimming in a goldfish bowl. News one day gives way to some other transient story the next, and so on and on. With the result that if one were to rely on the Western media for understanding on any particular issue, there is faint chance of proper assimilation. This is because there is typically negligible context, perspective or continuity – as well as, of course, misleading spin and outright disinformation.

To illustrate: one of the most bizarre – unwittingly bizarre – recent news reports was how US Secretary of State John Kerry made an urgent call to Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov. Kerry reportedly needed Lavrov for help in clinching a breakthrough in the deadlocked nuclear negotiations with Iran.

Poets’ Talk: “Why Is This World So Sad?” And, “The Armor of God”

At any rate, how will that “Ole Time Religion” square with this basically unimaginable world towards which we are racing?

Why is this world so sad? Do you have a religious answer? A faith-based answer?

CO: Life is suffering, and the ancient story of John the Baptist and Herod belongs to modern history…. Our “Herod” (POTUS) stands militarily above all other nations, and only Russia seems to stop the U.S. from cutting off (bombing) any head(s) our Controllers desire.

They intimidate the Vatican, and instead of “putting on the armor of God,” (St. Paul), the Roman Catholic Church often acquiesces, and by the “sin of omission,” helps hasten the making of a Rich Man & Lazarus world, an inevitable War of Civilizations.

GC: I agree. And I’m thinking these are threads we can address in a future “Poets Talk.” I don’t think we’ve dealt with religion at all (?!). Tough subject, but very necessary. Given your qualms, I wonder: how do you remain in the Church?

“Peacenik” former Israeli Prime Minister says “Bomb Iran Now”

Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak went on CNBC on Wednesday and said that the U.S. should deliver Iran an ultimatum it could never accept and then unleash a bombing blitzkreig. The ultimatum, that Iran should dismantle its entire nuclear program, would simply be a formality to provide cover for naked aggression.

Six Things You Didn’t Know the U.S. and its Allies Did to Iran

It’s hard for some Americans to understand why the Obama administration is so determined to come to an agreement with Iran on its nuclear capability, given that huge Iranian rallies are constantly chanting “Death to America!” I know the chanting makes me unhappy, since I’m part of America, and I strongly oppose me dying.

But if you know our actual history with Iran, you can kind of see where they’re coming from. They have understandable reasons to be angry at and frightened of us — things we’ve done that if, say, Norway had done them to us, would have us out in the streets shouting “Death to Norway!” Unfortunately, not only have the U.S. and our allies done horrendous things to Iran, we’re not even polite enough to remember it.

US: Iran sanctions to be removed in 'phased manner'

The United States says sanctions imposed on Iran would be lifted in “a phased manner” as part of a final nuclear agreement between Tehran and the P5+1 group of countries.

"Sanctions will be suspended in a phased manner upon verification that Iran has met specific commitments under a finalized joint comprehensive plan of action," State Department spokesman Jeff Rathke said on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That was the same thing the US said when the preliminary P5+1 deal was signed, and the US never reduced the existing sanctions. Indeed they increased them, always under the excuse that the US wasn't "sure" Iran was complying with the deal. This is why Iran is demanding all sanctions to be lifted on signing of the final deal, because Iran knows the US cannot be trusted. This announcement is intended to derail any chance of a final deal being made, to open the door for a war to eliminate Iran as a regional economic rival to Israel, to impose a private central bank on Iran, to control which currency Iran's oil is traded for, and with US kids doing the fighting and dying.

Ex-Israeli PM to US: Give Iran 'or else' ultimatum

Barak said he would rather see a peacefully negotiated end to Iran's nuclear threat.

But since the announcement last week of a framework of a deal between Iran and the U.S. and its negotiating partners—Russia, China, France, the U.K. and Germany—there have been conflicting accounts of the extent of the agreement and what it means for the chances of reaching a final accord by the end of June.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are getting into a real Kafka situation here. Iran doesn't have a nuclear weapons program. Nobody has found any evidence to suggest that they do (although with the US and Israel attacking anyone who doesn't have a nuclear deterrent one could hardly fault Iran for wanting one).

Israel has been screaming that Iran is within weeks of having a nuclear weapon since the 1980s and it hasn't happened yet.

Meanwhile a recently declassified US document confirms that the US Government has known that Israel has had nuclear weapons since the 1970s, numbering in the hundreds, including Hydrogen bombs the US helped Israel develop. Israel (which has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and does not allow IAEA inspections) has so many nuclear weapons that they offered to sell one to the former government of South Africa; the very activity the NNPT is intended to prevent.

Maybe Israel is simply projecting their own guilt onto others, sort of a "It's okay for us to do it because everyone is doing it" attitude. Maybe after forty years they believe their own propaganda. Or maybe, as Netanyahu recently revealed, Israel knows Iran doesn't have a nuclear weapons program, but the goal is to destroy Iran as a regional political and economic rival to Israel, with US kids in uniform doing the dirty work (as happened in Iraq).

But as nuclear-armed Israel hysterically shrieks about how much danger they face from non-nuclear Iran, keep one thing in mind. Iran has not invaded another nation in a war of aggression in over 200 years; a track record of peace standing in stark contrast to Israel and the US, which these days cannot seem to go six months without invading, drone-striking, or overthrowing other nations.

'Bomb, Bomb, Bomb Iran' McCain Has The Nerve To Call Obama's Foreign Policy 'Immoral'

I have a lot of disagreements with the Obama administration's policies, like the fact that they've basically continued President Bush's so-called "war on terror" and have bought into the idea that if you just drop enough bombs on people's heads from unmanned drones that you're somehow going to get rid of threats to the United States instead of just making them worse. The Patriot Act is still in place. We've done nothing to roll back the surveillance state that was put in place after 9-11 and I could go on and on, but I won't.

That said, one of the very last people I want to hear a lecture from on how the Obama administration has supposedly failed completely at foreign policy is Sen. McCrashy, John McCain, who still needs some anger management counseling over the fact that the uppity Kenyan usurper Barack Obama derailed his plans for being President of the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Actually, McCain destroyed himself when he chose Caribou Barbie as his running mate.

Bait-and-Switch Sanctioning of Iran

The idea of Iran as a regional marauder that is gobbling up other countries in the Middle East and against which pressure must therefore be unrelenting has become one of the favorite themes of those determined to kill the nuclear agreement with Tehran. As an argument for rejecting the nuclear deal, this approach has always suffered from major factual and logical flaws.

Iran – The Story behind the Story

Allowing a country like Iran destroying the US hegemon’s power base by taking a sovereign decision to abandon the dollar for oil and gas trading – no way.

It would have meant the end of the dollar as the world’s chief reserve currency, and giving up the instrument of coercing the world into accepting Washington’s dictate, the tool that serves to dish out sanctions left and right – no way!

Washington’s seemingly blind and preposterous arrogance drives the closest allies into the ‘adversary’s camp. The FED (Federal Reserve Bank) announced on 2 April 2015 that it fined the German Commerz bank with 1.7 billion US dollars for dealing with Cuba, Sudan and Iran – Washington sanctioned countries.

When even the staunchest stooges of empire seek alliances in the East, the writing is on the wall, that the economic winds are shifting, that a tectonic sea-change is in the offing and that the Iran nuclear deal, one way or another, doesn’t really matter in the foreseeable future.

Israel attacked America on 9-11-01! – Shout it from the rooftops (Part II)

It’s time for those Americans who assisted the Israelis with 9-11-01 and who covered it up to be indicted, arrested, tried and convicted for their various roles in the attack on America on 9-11-01 by Israel and its coverup.

This of course means that both of the massive American invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan were based on the big lies, false-narratives and propaganda dispensed to the American masses by the Controlled Major Mass Media (CMMM) and were completely illegal under international law and thereby constitute abject war crimes for which those.

Numerous former top USG Officials and Members of Congress will someday soon be made accountable for committing espionage against America related to 9-11-01, its coverup and for all their war crimes based on lying about it and falsely blaming Islamics in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Foreign intervention wrong reaction to violence in Yemen — Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

Foreign intervention is a wrong reaction to the situation in Yemen, Supreme Leader of Iran Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Thursday.
"A foreign intervention is a wrong reaction to internal violence and civil war, especially after catastrophes that happened in Afghanistan and Yemen," he said.
The Ayatollah stressed that Iran is against foreign military intervention in the Middle East, particularly in Yemen. "The only way out of the current humanitarian crisis in the country is immediately ceasing air strikes delivered by Saudi Arabia on the territory of Yemen," Ali Khamenei said.
He also called on Sunnis and Shias "to unite in these difficult times." The Ayatollah added that Iran supports national dialogue in Yemen.
